Arsenal FC are set to double the weekly wages of Spaniard Alvaro Morata if he agrees to join the Emirates this forthcoming season, according to reports making the rounds.
The extra effort is seen as part of desperate efforts by the London club to nab the player after missing out on other possible additions.
Real Madrid activated their buy-back clause to get Morata from Juventus in order to now sell to the highest bidder. Chelsea FC, Arsenal’s rival, are among the favourites to land the player this summer from the Bernabeu forcing Arsenal to offer the player extra incentive so he joins this summer. The 23-year old player scored 12 goals in the last season for Juventus after making 47 appearances for the Turin-based club. AS reports that the striker is not keen on staying at Madrid except he would get serious game time which might not be very realistic, so he is keen on going where he would get enough time like he enjoyed back in the Serie A.
Arsenal are now offering £144,000 weekly to land the player this summer. Chelsea coach Antonio Conte is also keen on the player, who displayed what he was capable off when both teams met at the Euro 2016 in France. Italy were the victors as they defeated their counterparts 2-0 but Morata enjoyed a decent performance at the tournament.
Arsenal are in serious need of a prolific and consistent striker after the performance of their first choice forward Olivier Giroud left much to be desired in the last campaign. With more pressure on Arsene Wenger to win the English Premier League he last lifted in 2004, the club is out for a good goals’ poacher to do the job well in the coming season. The club is obviously willing to go extra length for Morata.
Although Arsene Wenger is all set to receive a huge amount of money to spend in the transfer market by the Arsenal board but, he says that his priority will still be to spot young players with potential and give them opportunities.
The Arsenal academy has always produced some great young players and Wenger has a lot to do with that. He is very good at spotting talents.
Talking to the reporters on this topic yesterday, the Gunners boss said, “If you trust them (the young players) and give them opportunities, they will be keen to repay you. Also, they feel secure and remain loyal to the club. So, these are the advantages.” Continue reading YOUNG PLAYERS ARE PRIORITY →
Manchester city manager Roberto Mancini has said that his club can lose the title this weekend if they do not win against Arsenal. There are only seven games remaining in the Premier league this season and United currently have an five-point advantage of Manchester city. Given that United play ahead of City this weekend, they are more likely to have an eight point advantage by the time City face Arsenal. In this situation, Mancini reckons that City will be out of the title if they do not win against Arsenal at the Emirates. Arsenal are themselves in a battle with Tottenham and Chelsea for the Champions League position.
The Italian, though, has said that he is not looking at the possibility of losing the title this weekend and continues to prepare with enthusiasm like for every other match. City had a five point lead over United during November, but that has slowly shrunken in the last few months. Since January, City have been extremely poor in the league. The Premier league remains their only trophy they can win this season. Defeat against Swansea and draws against Sunderland and Stoke city have certainly hurt the chances of City lifting the trophy this season.
“If we lose against Arsenal and they beat QPR – yes. I think always positive, I can’t think this. Against Sunderland we didn’t play very well, for me we were so flat in the first half. But we shot 25 times on goal, we had 65 per cent ball possession. Sunderland shot three times at goal and scored three goals. We did some mistakes defensively but we were unlucky,” Mancini said ahead of the match with Arsenal. Arsenal are currently level on points with Tottenham in the table, but crucially ahead due to a better goal difference.
